Adventures In Design Episode 11 “Standing On The Shoulders Of Giants” featuring the international editorial illustrator Raymond E. Biesinger
We did it, we F-ing did it! On July 1st, or as we like to call it, Canada Day, the show was downloaded for the 20,000th time. A number that I had no idea we were capable of reaching in just 6 short months. It’s pretty crazy to think that over 40,000 hours of our nonsense chatter exists out there on laptops, iPads, iPhones and Droid whatevers alike. It’ll be interesting to see what the next 6 months bring us, hopefully a lot more bright, talented people with a sense of humor, like this amazing conversation we had with Raymond Biesinger in Episode 11. Thanks for downloading and most of all, thanks for listening!!!
Good Day & Good Designing,

About This Episode
Episode 11 kicks off with the normal nonsense that has started to define the start of the show… The design podcast that takes at least 10-15 minutes before they actually even start talking about design. In the chitter chatter of non design related topics you’ll hear about rescuing dogs and the first ever guy’s only segment featuring “Uncle Brickey’s Recipe For Perfect Summer Balls”. This time around the Circle of Trust goes north of the border to Montreal, Quebec to interview Raymond Biesinger a international man of editorial illustration. Raymond, a regular listener of the show, fits in well as the third wheel and openly talks about how he got into making editorial illustration his main design discipline and at times being the in the sweet spot of turning down 2-3 jobs for every one job that he agrees to. Raymond also shines a little light on to getting clients to “Auction for your time” and about how important it is for him to make sure that his client projects provide enough finical security so that he can afford to get involved in his own passion projects that normally have little to no money attached to them. A great honest and modest interview that intelligently explains the difference between illustration and design careers, his love of history and 101 things you probably didn’t know about Canada. During the world famous “shop talk” segment, the show covers the topics of how the creative process works for Mark & Billy individually, advice on when to price a project and how to react to unsettling feedback from your clients. Plus, where to sell your prints online, thoughts on the poster collector website Expresso Beans, advice on picking a good art festival, all of these topics and many more are waiting for you on this episode of Adventures In Design.
